Very disappointing design. What's with this front fairing?

Oh dear....

What is going on with bike design these days!  What cant anyone make a decent looking bike?  I notice how in the video they never give you a good look of the new front fairing.  Have a look here:

It looks like the front fairing has broken and slipped down!

Also

I guarentee the bike press will rave about it, same as the new Speed Triple.  Faster by x seconds blah blah blah.  Journos seem to miss the point its the public who actually have to pay thousands and then open a garage door in the mornings to these monsters!

Tuono.......my piles are killing me riding this

People amaze me.Every year manufacturers bring out a SO CALLED new model and people are like WOW,I'LL SELL A KIDNEY TO HAVE THATor NOT MUCH DIFFERENT TO SUCH AND SUCH.

Why the amazement?Because people can't see the forest for the trees,in other words they should have learned by now that bike manufacturers are sly,sensing that bike design is or has just about reached its zenith,they bring out models like this TUONO.The ideas drying up,its time to cash in and MILK the exsisting designs for all they can,giving the punters an actual stripped down RSV4 race bike. Rejigged fuelling,bit o' this,bit o' that and hey presto we'll call it a naked street bike,so much better than the rest,yes and we'll have a new model in our line up,the buying public will never know.

Come on!Iknow you try to extract and exploit a design as possible but there is a limlit.Ducati hsa done the same along with numerous other manufacturers.Instead of re-tooling and redesigning(as this wouldn't be feasible,especailly now-a-days)they re-hash,strip down a race rep,a bit of this,bit of that.......ta da new bike!

AT least change the riding position,footpegs,seat(especalliy)as the TUONO looks as if it'll break your back ridden anywhere other than the local highstreet.

Nice bike but looks TOO much the stripped RACE REP TOO BE STREET WISE!!SORRY!!!:mad:

Nice bike....

Looks extreme and unforgiving - lots of fun then!

However, I take delivery of a 2009 Tuono 1000R next week and am happy with that choice, ta.

Shame

The Tuono always looked like a crashed RSV.  They could've done so much more with this.

Pointless

Is this the same old problem as with the last Tuono, all top end and just a de fairinged attempt at being a naked bike ?

I think sometimes less is more. Here for a naked bike it has too much fairing, and the front headlights just don't look good. The rest of the bike looks great.

I want one now!!

I test rode an RSV4 Factory recently and it was absolutely incredible. I would love one, but I find myself constantly at silly speeds on my current RSV and so am thinking of getting a naked. This gives me the best of both worlds. Maybe it is just an RSV4 with a bit of fairing changed, but that is exactly what I want. Better looking than the new Speed Triple too :)
